Even if you can survive the manners of crazed Boston drivers, good luck finding a parking spot. Simmons’s small size becomes a disadvantage when trying to find parking. Faculty and staff are offered parking, but there is no on-campus parking for students. Resident students are not allowed to park on the Residence Campus or at the Main Campus Building.
During the winter—the one time you would really want a spot—parking becomes more difficult or even prohibited. It is not rare to see a car completely covered with snow after a plow has just moved through the streets. Good luck digging that out. Visitors to the Residence Campus often park along the meters on Boylston. Make sure you’ve stocked up on quarters to feed the meters, and make sure they are working. Many overnight guests find themselves with the unpleasant surprise of an electric orange parking ticket. The parking officers have no sympathy when writing a ticket.
